    (January 31, 1942-February 19, 1994)
    Born in Northwood, Middlesex, England, United Kingdom
    Birth name was Michael Derek Elworthy Jarman
    Directed 'Sebastiane' (1976), 'Jubilee' (1978), 'The Tempest' (1979), 'Caravaggio' (1986), 'The Last of England' (1988), 'War Requiem' (1989), 'Edward II' (1991), 'Wittgenstein' (1993) and 'Blue' (1993)
    Directed videos for Marianne Faithful, The Smiths and The Pet Shop Boys
    The homoeroticism of several of his films (notably 'Sebastiane' and 'Edward II') was controversial.
    He explained the extensive nudity in 'Sebastiane' by saying, 'We couldn't afford costumes.'
    The visual for 'Blue' consisted entirely of a blue screen.
    Commenting on his reputation as the enfant terrible of British cinema, he said, 'Shakespeare, the Sonnets, Caravaggio, Britten's Requiem -- what more traditional subject matter could a filmmaker take on?'
    He made 'Blue' after he had gone blind from AIDS-related complications.
